After being forced to postpone the event from its original December date, artists were able to convene Saturday at the Oil Springs Cultural and Arts Recreation Center for the fourth Winterfest.
The event is an annual a gathering of local artists and vendors from around the region sharing their work, selling their goods and even teaching their trades.
Pamela Shepherd Goble with PS Photography was on hand to take
photos at the kissing booth, and the Johnson County Animal Shelter even set up a space for visitors to meet adoptable animals.
“We all had a blast,” said BlueGrace Art Studios owner Becky Clay. “It was a fun combination of things happening.”
Clay said the Route 23 Cultural Heritage Network, which helps oversee the OSCAR Center, has had several new artists come on board and they are scheduling upcoming classes and workshops, including some to be held at the historic Stafford House in downtown Paintsville.
